Yemen disintegration would benefit no regional side: Deputy-FM

TEHRAN, Feb. 27 (MNA) – Iran’s deputy-FM has warned against any intervention in Yemen’s current developments, noting the disintegration of this country would be to the benefit of no side in the region.

Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian referred to the recent developments in Yemen and said, “those sides who seek to impose a civil war on Yemen from the southern city of Aden must take heed not to make a strategic mistake in their calculations.”

While stressing that the disintegration of this Arab country would benefit no regional side, Amir-Abdollahian asserted that the leaders and people of Yemen would not allow their country to become another Somalia or Libya.

He maintained that the Islamic Republic of Iran backs the national unity of Yemen and the implementation of the Peace and National Partnership Agreement which complements the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council.

On February 6, Yemen’s Houthi movement dissolved the Yemeni parliament and announced a constitutional declaration on the Transitional National Council following weeks of clashes with government forces. The Ansarullah revolutionaries say the Yemeni government has been incapable of properly running the affairs of the country and providing security.

The United Nations Special Adviser on Yemen Jamal Benomar announced on February 20 that the opposing sides in Yemen’s conflict have agreed on the formation of a democratic transitional council, which will be tasked with making efforts to end the chaos in the Arab country.
